Let me preface this by saying I have never in my life had a brussel sprout. They were my forbidden vegetable.

We were in a local market this week though and I couldn’t help but buy a whole bunch of brussel sprouts. I had no idea what I would do with them. 

After much thought, I figured they couldn’t be much different than cabbage.

This brussel sprouts recipe has become one of our favorite side dishes! Right up there with my baked brown sugar carrots or this cheesy asparagus recipe.

I had seen similar ideas to this roasted brussel sprouts with bacon recipe floating around magazines and pinterest, but when it came to making this recipe, I couldn’t find what I was looking for! So I winged it! That was years ago and now it is a beloved family recipe.

After rinsing, shred your brussel sprouts. If you have a shredding blade for a food processor, you could use that as well or even a box grater. If you have none of those, no problem, just use a knife.

Next, you will want to drizzle olive oil over your shredded brussel sprouts, as well as balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and diced bacon (uncooked). You can do this in a large zip lock bag or in a bowl.

Pour your brussel sprouts on a large sheet pan in a single layer and roast for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees. You will want to give them a nice toss every 10 minutes or so to prevent sticking and overly browning.

I think the truth of the matter is if you think you don’t like something, try preparing it another way. Steamed brussel sprouts? No thanks! Roasted Shredded Brussel Sprouts with Bacon? Yes please!

This recipe is even delicious as leftovers, cold, like a salad would be. What makes this recipe so delicious is how tender and crispy the brussel sprouts get as the bacon fat and olive oil caramelize them.
